ministering pastor here in the city and county of san francisco. so, i would ask that we adjourn the meeting in his memory today. and then the last point is sort of a point of interest and information. it is reported that the boy scouts of america today sent out 1.1 million questionnaires to its members asking a sear i of questions that ask members of the boy scouts to give their opinions on their current and long existing ban on gays serving in the boy scouts. so, it is our hope that the members of this organization, that see the point that if the military can survive with open members of the lgbt serving, certainly the boy scouts of america can survive as well. they fill out that questionnaire and once and for all get rid of the discriminatory practice that this institution has had for so many years. it doesn't make sense. it's the year 2013. let's move forward, not backwards. >> thank you, supervisor campos. supervisor chiu. >> thank you, madam clerk. colleagues, i have two items. one is concerning something you have probably become apprised of. recently regarding new ads on our muni buse

the commission on status of women issued the comppable pay study of the city and county of san francisco. in 1981 the board of supervisors passed a resolution stating unequivocal support to lmentd pay inequities based on race and sex and by bringing them up to parity. i believe that this remains the policy of the city and county of san francisco. under mayor fine stein the city of san francisco identified jobs classifications traditionally held by women and people of color and paid less than white men. in many cases the positions required skill and experience and were as value to the city as higher paid ones. after the voters adopted proposition h in 1986 the city started reversing years of discrimination any reversing this trend. over the next decade the cities adjusted pay scales to eliminate gender and race based inequity but as american moved forward san francisco is threatening to go in reverse: the department of human resources has reproposed reducing pay for 45 job classifications and held by women and leaving others alone held by white and men workers. many was done by the

the lives of children and families in san francisco for over three decades. she will have an opportunity to speak in a minute, but she will not say much about herself, so, let me give you a glimpse of her dedication serving some of san francisco's most vulnerable children and families from the time i met her in early 1980s helping southeast asian refugees in the tenderloin reset l themselves from war torn countries to a current organization that helps homeless families with small children to get back on their feet. ~ it is a true testament to her work and her dedication that she has created such a great and high-quality program that can serve not only homeless families, but families from all special economic levels, a feat not easily accomplished in san francisco. a little more about donna. after she earned her b.s. degree in elementary education from the university of pittsburgh and after teaching children through the seta program, donna really came to san francisco. on her arrival, she discovered proposition 13 resulted in the layoff of hundreds of bay area teachers and having been ins

that addresses a dire crisis for san francisco's city college and what they face this year with their accreditation process. and as we look forward also to a hearing that will be coming up later this month at the board. my resolution that i urge support for would help us pass assembly bill 11 99 authored by assemblyman paul fong, but also sponsored by assemblyman bill ting and tom ammiano as well. city college, as you know, serves one in 10 san franciscans. it has one of our top nursing programs in the state and half of our public school graduates in san francisco start college in higher education there. it also is critical for the future of our work force in san francisco as it trains adult workers and gives them new skills that better their lives and to get better jobs. as we work together to protect and strengthen city college, this resolution is really important in allowing the city college to move forward with more flexibility in its funding. the sanctions that may be placed against city college by the accrediting agency really is being promoted in many ways from effor
here in san francisco. i also think it's important that you have to recognize that you have a lot of work outside the youth commission you work on. you've been instrumental in helping to set up mission prep school in the excelsior district and have brought me into the work of the school as well. so, i want to thank you for that. prior to any of this and people don't know about is that you were actually a child actor. [laughter] >> and have been actually in many films. i wish i had it set up before hand [speaker not understood], but you were actually cute when you were a kid. you were in a disney film. you also were in jim cramer of the giant peach or [speaker not understood] robin williams movie. i haven't seen it yet. i'm going to make sure i see them later on today. congratulations on everything you've done. i'm super proud of your work and i look forward to what you do at sf rising. i know the empowerment model you have brought to the youth commission will be exceptional in this new setting and look forward to working with you. >> thank you for el us that, supervisor avalos. i
of health care in san francisco, and as i said earlier today, i very much appreciate everyone who is part of the negotiating operating room that resuscitated this critical project. and i also want to echo the thanks that have already been described. there are so many folks that we need to give credit to moving us to where we are today, starting first and foremost with the tremendous community coalition that has been working for many years across so many different policy and community areas. i, of course, also want to start by thanking our mediator lou jirardo who was tremendous and this project would not be where it is today without his leadership. clearly there was also tremendous leadership within the city. we need to single out ken rich for the millions of hours that he spent working on this as well as with many department heads and, of course, our mayor. and then i want to take a moment and just thank supervisors campos and farrell. i know that campos, farrell, chiu are three supervisorial names not discussed together in a sentence but each of our colleagues plate a critical and equal
and dedication and passion living here and involved in san francisco. and i know this is not a good-bye, and i look forward to the next phase in your brilliant career. >> supervisor wiener. >> thank you. well, mario, we're going to definitely miss you, although obviously you're not going to be going far. you know, the way i got to know you or we got to know each other, i think the most was through the free muni for youth debate and we were obviously on opposite sides of that debate. [speaker not understood]. we were obviously on opposite sides of that debate and that was difficult debate. and i know you were very, very passionate about the proposal and i had my own strong view. and the one thing that always struck me about you is that you, whatever the disagreement, you were always just so professional and kind and courteous and very persistent in pushing what you thought was right. but just incredibly professional. i always really appreciated that. i'll tell you and this is i guess advice to a lot of different advocates that engaging with someone you disagree with in a professional and produc
cpmc to continue a baseline level of taking care of charity care in san francisco. this is a need, we know we're going to have to continue regardless of what happens with obamacare. the new term sheet continues that commitment, as well as continues to ensure that additional medi-cal [speaker not understood] patient lives will be protected. about 30,000 charity care patients per year are commited in this new term sheet and an additional 5400 new medi-cal managed care patient lives of which 1500 will come through a primary care provider in the tenderloin are part of this deal. another topic that was very important to the community is around local hire and work force training. as in the original da, cpmc will hire at least 30% of all construction jobs from san francisco, but we have also improved the provisions for future permanent jobs. originally the deal called for 40 jobs a year for five years. we used our local hiring ordinance and i want to thank supervisor avalos for his leadership on that, such that in this deal 40% of new entry level permanent jobs over the next decade which tar
and in san francisco. first slide please. so comparable worth began in 1942 in terms of general order 16 issued by the labor board. basically the federal government decided to adjust wages for women to equal men doing work of comparable work and quality. you can imagine when the men were at war the women were doing the work. the order remedied was a job assessment to determine the value of the work so that's really the origin of the discussion. in 1955 the u.s. census bureau reported that women earned 64% of what men earned. in 1963 there was a federal equal pay act that was introduced that mandated equal pay with the following important exceptions. under the bennett amendment allowed differentiation of payment based on one seniority, two, merit, three, productivity, or four, any other factor, so you can imagine employers went to look for justifications for pay inequities in terms of these things. 1964 title seven of the civil rights act prohibits discrimination of covered employers based on race, sex, national origin and 15 or more employees for each working day and in the calenda
the son of ruth jackson. wenzel was born june 15th, 1956 and was raised in san francisco visitacion valley community. he's a graduate of woodrow wilson high school and participated in team sports such as tennis and softball. he worked at merrill lynch 15 years where he developed his management skills and later left corporate life to pursue his calling in pastoral ministry. he leaves behind to cherish his memory his best friend and his loving wife tamara hall man jackson, his parents of washington, d.c., and ruth jackson, also affectionately known as polly. she's a leader right here in our own visitacion valley community. he left behind four brothers, brian, drew, james, and lorenzo and one brother-in-law, raphael who resides in hollywood, california. so, please join me in lifting up our dear friend and sister ruth jackson as she mourns the loss of one of her children. on another note, another sad note, i also want to lift up another mother of the bayview community that has lost her son. many of you know ms. espinola jackson. she recently lost her daughter to a battle of cancer. ms. yvonne
and ex-boyfriend. i know that many women's groups from gabrielle a to san francisco women against rape to the filipino women's network and the san francisco domestic violence consortium have been working on this issue for many years. ms. timpanco claire joyce made at least five 911 calls during violent episodes that allegedly perpetrated by her killer and while he was mandated to attend counseling after one of the attacks he failed to complete the batterers's program. police unknowingly released him after a subsequent attack on ms. timpanko. her case thankfully led to -- led to improvements in how we handle domestic violence cases in san francisco. but it's because of the hard work of our antidomestic violence organizations and women's groups and community organizations that we've made progress. but there is so much more to be done and we cannot stand for this conviction to be overturned at the california supreme court. so, i urge you to check in with the women's and antidomestic violence groups as this case moves forward. this decision could have a huge and long-lasting effect not jus

. next slide. in 1978 as was referenced the san francisco commission on women and women library workers conducted a study on city classifications and according to that study women earned 69% of what men earned. notice it's not much higher than 1955. men worked in 1200 classes and women were concentrated under 500 classes. the conclusion of that report said men's jobs pay more with comparable education and experience. the context at the time there was a supreme court case and they ruled title seven covers wage discrimination whether or not the jobs are exactly the same or not, so it was considered a landmark decision. however, in the application of this court case since 1981 there has been a narrowing of the application. a lot of cases have used the bennett amendment to justify pay differentials based on gender, and actually in fact there have been few successful cases of comparable worth violations. the seiu city committee on comparable worth was convened in 1981 as was referenced by supervisor avalos the board passed a resolution stating adopting a policy to erase pay inequities a
